Lemon Garlic Swiss Chard
Chard is one of those vegetables that we used to have on special occasions. I think it's great on any occasion and is a good alternative to spinach as a side or main dish. Recently we tried a different recipe for chard and were very pleased with the results. We think you will enjoy this as well as its very simple to make. This recipe serves 3-4.
